Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class page for Firefly class (Miss Elston), Finch class (Mrs May and Ms Kosir) and Firecrest class (Miss Barlow).
Dear Parents and Carers,
 
Please continue to remind your child to bring in their reading diaries everyday and change their book as needed. Please ensure that any reading done at home is recorded in your child's reading diary.
 
In Year 5 children are expected to know all of their times tables. Please continue to practise these regularly with your children at home.
 
Please see attached the list of weekly homework spellings for this term. Please note that  due to swimming spellings will be tested on Thursdays. Homework will be given out on Thursday and due in the following Tuesday. If you have any problems or questions regarding the homework please speak to your class teacher before it is due in. A copy of the Year 5 spellings is also attached, children need to to continue to look at these regularly throughout the year.
 
In Term 5 we will be reading WarHorse by Michael Morpurgo. To further their understanding of the time in which the story is set, we have asked the children to complete a project on an aspect of World War One that interests them. The project is due on Tuesday 16th May. We look forward to seeing all of the interesting and creative work that they produce.
 
We thoroughly enjoyed our school trip to the docks with Captain Harry. We learnt lots about the history of pirates in Bristol. Many thanks to all the parent and carer helpers, who made this trip possible. It allowed the trip to run safely and smoothly and the children really enjoyed themselves. We really appreciate your continued support.
